Print screen not working on windows 8 pro



Need help!!!

I have upgraded from vista to windows 8 pro. I am trying to print screen but nothing seems to work (hp pc).

I have tried the following;


Windows button +print screen

Fn+ print screen

Ctrl+ print screen

Alt+ print screen

Ctrl+fn+ print screen


When I click Windows+ print screen it takes me into the control panel- system page.

Nothing else happens when I click on the other keys.

Hope you could help me with this issue.


Thanks in advance,

Re: Print screen not working on windows 8 pro

Hi Cat32,


I understand you are not able to print using shortcut keys.

I was just wondering if you installed the printer on your new Windows 8 Pro.

I would like to help but I do need to know the printer that you are using.


Here is a link to drivers and software help.


Please let me know if you require further assistance.
